I’ve realized something, because recently following a couple Darkwing Duck blogs made me think of it. DWD has always been vastly underutilized by Disney. I still don’t know why they decided to end the comic done by BOOM! Studios. I cannot possibly imagine that it wasn’t making money.
It wasn’t that Darkwing Duck didn’t do well as a comic but that Boom! lost their license to make and sell Disney comics. Here’s a little article about it.
The good news is that Disney has really been good about slowly introducing new Disney Afternoon merchandise the past couple of years, and people are buying it. It helps that the generation who grew up with the Disney Afternoon are now adults who are excited about and willing to buy this stuff from their favorite childhood shows.
You can definitely look forward to more Darkwing Duck goodness in the coming year. Keep an eye out!
